Sports and Performance Enhancement Program
The Clinic’s drugless Performance Enhancement Treatment Program is aimed at improving performance from the perspective of how well the brain processes sensory data, supports core cognitive function, and coordinates accurate movement.
Our Performance Enhancement Program is effective for athletes, sports professionals, corporate executives, and other elite performers who rely on quick physical and cognitive reaction times.
The program includes a thorough neurophysiological assessment, and medical treatments which use a combination of both Western and Eastern expertises. The approach evaluates current functional level in the related areas in the brain, and tunes these to your maximum capacity. The NeuroKinetics Performance Enhancement program is intended to complement your current training regimen.
Areas of Performance Enhancement
Performance improvements can include balance control, hand-eye coordination, and perception of space, proprioception, cognitive focus, decision making, stamina, and perception of time allowing for optimal precision in motion. The treatments also assist in improving overall cardio-postural conditioning.
Improved perception and accurate reflexes provide the added benefit of increased injury prevention.
Philippe A. Souvestre, MD (France) developed the NeuroKinetics expertise while working at the French Flight Test Centre with the aim to help test pilots recover faster without using medication. With that success, he went on to make this expertise available to a wider audience, successfully treating post-trauma patients who had tried many other therapies without success. This showed that the new model was an effective approach for assessing and treating a range of injuries. As Dr. Souvestre was also an avid sports enthusiast he applied it to sports professionals.
From 1985 to 1995, Dr. Souvestre practiced sports medicine with amateur and elite athletes as a team physician, personal medical coach, senior medical research associate and lecturer at the Regional Sports Medicine Centre, Faculty of Medicine, and University of Aix- Marseille II. During these ten years, he was also the Chief Medical Officer in charge of health, fitness and performance maximization for several French national and regional sports teams in skydiving, Olympic biathlon, triathlon, and marathon as well as track and field, soccer, rugby, rugby league team, equestrians and jockeys, and aerobatics.
In Vancouver since 1995, he has successfully helped renowned professional athletes including those from the NHL, CFL, extreme skydiving and ski, Olympic cycling and triathlon, and wrestling. Since 1988, his research work is peer-recognized and has been awarded in France and in Canada with several research grants from both National Research Agencies, as it led to several patents regarding posture, gait and movement controls assessment and therapeutic medical technologies.
